TOWN OF SARATOGA – Several people were injured Wednesday night in a deck collapse on Route 9P in the Town of Saratoga, including three children, the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office said.

Most of the injuries were described by officials as minor, including the injuries to the three children, officials said. Those individuals were treated on scene. But one man was taken to Saratoga Hospital for treatment, officials said.

The incident happened at about 8:30 at the location on Route 9P. A sheriff’s release did not give the exact address.

It appears eight people were on an upper deck, which gave way and fell onto a group of people on a lower deck, officials said.  

The Town of Saratoga code enforcement officer was investigating, officials said. Nothing criminal is suspected.

Responding and assisting on scene were the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office, state police, the Wilton/Schuylerville and Malta/Stillwater EMS and the Quaker Springs Fire Department.
